Enables the Domain Administrator to grant access rights, edit notes, and select the logo for the current domain.  Domain logo selection is not possible in an owner operator domain or EPC-Project Mode.  All the options in this window (except for the Notes box) are read-only and are accessible only by the System Administrator.

Domain — Displays the name of the current domain.

Number — Displays the name of the current domain (if specified).

Description — Displays the description of the current domain (if specified).

Administrator — Displays the user whom the System Administrator defined as Domain Administrator.

Domain schema name — Displays the Domain schema logon name.  The System Administrator cannot change the logon name.  It is created during domain initialization.

Plant hierarchy separator — Displays the separator set by the System Administrator.  The separator appears where all or part of a plant hierarchy is displayed as a string.  For example, if the separator character is &, and you have plant hierarchy items My Plant, My Area, and My Unit, in the Properties dialog box for the My Unit item, the software displays the parent hierarchy as My Plant&My Area

If working in an integrated environment, you cannot use a forward slash (/) as a plant hierarchy separator.

Domain type

Displays the domain type defined by the System Administrator for the current domain.

Engineering company — Such a domain is usually contracted to design and build plants based on process information.  These are 'grass-roots' projects that usually involve one set of data which may be revised extensively during the life-cycle of the plant.  In this case, the data for each project is maintained within a single database schema.

Engineering Company - Projects Mode -- A domain for engineering companies that are contracted to design and build plants based on process information where the EPC requires separation of the data into smaller projects. This domain type works in the same way as an Owner Operator domain. Each project is defined for one plant only, and a plant can have several projects associated with it.  The main body of data in the domain that includes existing data together with any data that was integrated on completion of projects is called Project Center.  In this case, the database is partitioned into several schemas: a single schema for Project Center and separate schemas for each project.

Owner operator — In such a domain, an operational plant exists and most of the activities are concerned with routine maintenance or plant modernization (revamps).  To facilitate plant modernization, a number of projects can be defined within the domain.  Each project is defined for one plant only, and a plant can have several projects associated with it.  The main body of data in the domain that includes existing data together with any data that was integrated on completion of projects is called As-Built.  In this case, the database is partitioned into several schemas: a single schema for As-Built and separate schemas for each project.

  • Exclusive claim mode — Indicates whether a Project Administrator can claim the same item for more than one project created in an owner operator domain or only for one project.  If the System Administrator has selected this check box, it is only possible to claim a particular item for one project.  It is possible, however, to claim this item for another project after removing the item from the project for which it was claimed first using the Release Claim merge action, or after merging the item with As-Built.  If the check box is cleared, a Project Administrator can claim the same item for more than one project, either directly from one project to another, or from As-Built.  This setting becomes permanently fixed in the current domain after creating the first project in the current domain.

  • Domain usage — Indicates the usage of an Owner operator domain, which can be one of the following:

    • None — This is the default value for a domain after an upgrade. Starting with this value, you can select any of the options.

    • Sub-contractor — Indicates that the domain is defined as a sub-contractor under a particular satellite domain. Once you have defined the domain usage as a sub-contractor, it is no longer possible to redefine its usage.

Domain features

Activity tracking — Indicates whether activity tracking options are enabled by the System Administrator.

Audit trail options — Indicates whether the audit trail options are enabled by the System Administrator.

The Audit trail options will not retrieve Change Log data for updates in Index and Wiring supporting tables as these are not recorded to the database.

Cable type dependency — Indicates whether cable type dependency is enabled by the System Administrator.

Single mode (on Oracle Server only) — When the check box is selected, all the items are unlocked.  This improves the software performance, but enables multiple users to work with the same item simultaneously.  When the check box is cleared, all the items are locked so that only one user at a time can work with the same item.

Default plant use — Indicates whether in the Plant Hierarchy Explorer, the plant DEFAULT and all its hierarchy levels are available.  If the System Administrator has cleared this check box when making the domain definitions, Smart Instrumentation users cannot access the default plant.  However, if required, the System Administrator can switch the use of the default plant on or off when making or modifying domain definitions.

  • If you define a plant hierarchy with more than three levels, it is no longer possible to use the default plant in this domain.  In this case, the software automatically clears the Default plant use check box.

  • If you intend to use Smart Instrumentation in an integrated environment, the System Administrator must clear this check box.

KKS mode — Indicates whether KKS naming conventions are enabled by the System Administrator.

Rule Manager — Indicates whether the use of Rule Manager is enabled by the System Administrator.

Obtain Revision from SmartPlant Foundation — Select this check box to allow Smart Instrumentation to use SmartPlant Foundation to create a new revision for publishable documents. On publishing a report, the software first checks whether the report has a SmartPlant Foundation revision and then assigns the appropriate revision scheme automatically. If a user added a Smart Instrumentation revision previously, but did not obtain a new revision from SmartPlant Foundation, the software uses the Smart Instrumentation Revision schema to publish reports. Note that with this option selected, you can still use internal Smart Instrumentation revision options for those items not registered to SmartPlant Foundation.

Clear the check box to allow Smart Instrumentation users to add revisions to publishable reports using only internal Smart Instrumentation revision settings. SmartPlant Foundation revision options become inaccessible. If a user obtained a revision from SmartPlant Foundation previously, but did not make a new Smart Instrumentation revision, the software ignores the previous revision and does not allow publishing of the report until the user creates a revision in Smart Instrumentation.

  • Regardless of whether the check box is selected or cleared, to publish a report, a Smart Instrumentation user must assign a revision to a report before publishing. If no revision exists, the software displays an appropriate message and does not allow publishing of the report.

  • When using revisions from SmartPlant Foundation, Smart Instrumentation can be configured to support minor as well as major revisions. For details, see Configure Smart Instrumentation to Use Minor Revisions

  • SmartPlant Foundation supports this option from versions SPF 2009 Service Pack 3 and above.

  • When registering items for use in an integrated environment, the Obtain revision from SmartPlant Foundation check box, in the Administration Module > Domain Definition > Domain features, is selected automatically even if it was not selected before registering. After the register items process is complete you must clear the Obtain revision from SmartPlant Foundation check box to continue to use Smart Instrumentation revision numbering. To use revision numbering from SmartPlant Foundation, leave the check box selected.

Workflow

Instrumentation and process data — Displays the workflow status selected by the System Administrator.  Workflow only applies where the selected domain type is Engineering company.  When the domain type is Owner operator orEPC-Project Mode , the Domain Administrator defines workflow in the Project Activities dialog box, at the level of the projects in the domain.

The available workflow options are:

  • Full — Indicates that all workflow options are activated, including marking instrument tags for release as a formal issue in a binder package.  The Release to Spec option becomes available in the Document Binder module and in the Spec Change Notification Options dialog box.

  • Without Document Binder — Indicates that all workflow options are activated, except for the option to release instrument tags as a formal issue in a binder package.

  • None — No workflow options are activated.

Specification title block

Custom title block assignment method — Applies only to title blocks displayed in specifications.  The System Administrator can change this setting at any stage of your domain life-cycle.  The methods are:

  • Standard (used in all modules) — Allows you to select one specific custom title block to be assigned to all specifications, using the options in the Report Management dialog box.  After selecting this option, the software hides all the title block assignment options that are available in the Specifications module.  If you assign the title block Specs default TB with PB units to specifications, you then need to place the title block correctly in a spec page layout.  To do so, in the Preferences Management dialog box, on Specifications > Custom page, under Parameter, enter TitleFooterHeight, and under Value, enter 798, which is the optimal value for specifications created using Smart Instrumentation options.  For a spec created in InfoMaker, you may need to enter a different value, depending on the settings of the spec page layout.

  • Special (used in Specifications module only) — Allows users to assign individual title blocks to any specification, using the title block assignment options available in the Specifications module.

Global path

Global path box — Displays the global path set by the System Administrator.

Allow to overwrite the global path — Indicates whether the System Administrator has enabled users to set user-defined paths in addition to the specified global path.  When the check box is selected, users are not restricted to setting new paths in Smart Instrumentation within the global path folder only.

Path for SmartPlant XML files — Displays the location of the Smart Instrumentation map files: ContextMap.xml and IntoolsMap.xml, which are needed for working in an integrated environment or using the point-to-point interfaces between tools.  The System Administrator can specify the XML path when making domain definitions.
